Peanut Butter Cookies: The Perfect Midnight Snack!

Alright, I confess. 

After watching Xena all evening (you've got to love that outfit, right?) I got a little restless!  All that travelling and fighting, and fighting and travelling.  Phew!  A girl could really get hungry. 

So I says to Mable, says I "You know what that Xena girl would probably like after all that yipping and carrying on?  Cookies."  So I made some.

I've been hankering after some soft on the inside, crisp on the bottom, make you drool peanut butter cookies for a while now and I think last night's experiment paid off!  Try them out, let me know what you think!

Peanut Butter Cookies!

Peanut Butter Cookies
*gluten free


1/4 cup margarine (Earth Balance is pretty yummy!)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (you could do crunchy or smooth)
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup of rice milk + 3-4 tbsp
1/2 cup brown sugar (if using an organic or less refined sugar, you may consider pulsing it a few times in a processor to make it easier to blend in with your oils/margarine)
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
2 tsp baking powder


Combine your margarine and PB until smooth.  Add in your sugar and mix, mix, mix.  When it is well combined, add in your vanilla and salt. (**Note: You could use agave or honey, however, I haven't played with the proportions yet so tread carefully and let me know if you have any successes!)

In a separate bowl, combine you flours and baking powder.  Add the flour mixture to the PB mixture and begin to combine adding a little rice milk at a time.  You will need at least the whole 1/4 cup of rice milk and possibly a few tbsp more.  The goal is a cookie dough that holds together enough to form a small ball, but that is wet enough that when you press the cookies down they don't just fall apart!

Roll ping-pong ball sized dough balls, arrange them on a tray with about an inch distance between each--these do not spread too much-- and then flatten them with a fork or the back of a spoon.  Bake in a pre-heated over (350F) for approx 10 mins, or until the edges look golden brown.  Enjoy!

We would love to hear what you think of this and other recipes so feel free to leave a comment below or come and tell us in person at the Make It Indie Show and Sale ( November 10th, in Cobourg!

Until then, ducklings!
